(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners participated in the Cairns Multicultural Festival, which took place from September 9 to 10, 2022. They were warmly welcomed by local politicians and residents.

On this piece of land that was originally inhabited by the aboriginal Yirrganydji people in Queensland, people from various ethnic groups celebrated together at Munro Martin Parklands.


Chairman of Multicultural Association: I Like Your Demonstration of Exercises

Practitioners attended the festival on the morning of September 10 and demonstrated the Falun Dafa exercises on stage. Kesa Strieby, the event’s coordinator, expressed her enthusiasm about the performances.

“I would like to thank you for performing the Falun Dafa exercises on Saturday,” she said. “Your team performed wonderfully. I really enjoyed watching you do the exercises on stage. The exercises are so peaceful, vigorous, and uplifting. We need more of this meditation in our busy lives.”

Kesa also came to the Falun Dafa booth with Councilor Bob Manning OAM, the Mayor of Cairns and recipient of the Order of Australia, and his wife to learn more about Falun Dafa. She signed the petition in support of the practitioners’ resistance to the persecution. “I stand by you, and good luck to you,” Kesa said.
